janiedelite Posted January 20, 2010 Report Share Posted January 20, 2010 I've noticed that since I've come down with POTS, I've struggled with nearly constant yeast infections. I'm complaining today because I just finished a course of over-the-counter treatment and I'm still having irritation down there. I'm sure it's yeast because my last pap smear was normal except for an overgrowth of yeast. At the time, my doctor asked about this but for some reason I didn't want to purue it. I was too overwhelmed with my more serious symptoms... silly me! I notice that any time I undergo stress, I develop a worse yeast infection along with my POTS flare. I know chronic yeast infections can be a sign of immune dysfunction, but my white cell count is normal as well as my ANA. I've been tested for every autoimmune disease known to man. But like many of you, I catch any bug that's going around and am twice as sick for twice as long, often developing secondary infections. That never happened prior to POTS.So, I am going to bring this up to my doctor within the next few days. But do any of you have any thoughts? Thanks in advance .
